# Fraction calculator

This fraction calculator performs basic and advanced fraction operations, expressions with fractions combined with integers, decimals, and mixed numbers. It also shows detailed step-by-step information about the fraction calculation procedure. The calculator helps in finding value from multiple fractions operations. Solve problems with two, three, or more fractions and numbers in one expression.

## The result:

### 43/4 = 19/4 = 4 3/4 = 4.75

Spelled result in words is nineteen quarters (or four and three quarters).

### How do we solve fractions step by step?

1. Conversion a mixed number 4 3/4 to a improper fraction: 4 3/4 = 4 3/4 = 4 · 4 + 3/4 = 16 + 3/4 = 19/4

To find a new numerator:
a) Multiply the whole number 4 by the denominator 4. Whole number 4 equally 4 * 4/4 = 16/4
b) Add the answer from the previous step 16 to the numerator 3. New numerator is 16 + 3 = 19
c) Write a previous answer (new numerator 19) over the denominator 4.

Four and three quarters is nineteen quarters.

#### Rules for expressions with fractions:

Fractions - use a forward slash to divide the numerator by the denominator, i.e., for five-hundredths, enter 5/100. If you use mixed numbers, leave a space between the whole and fraction parts.

Mixed numerals (mixed numbers or fractions) keep one space between the integer and
fraction and use a forward slash to input fractions i.e., 1 2/3 . An example of a negative mixed fraction: -5 1/2.
Because slash is both sign for fraction line and division, use a colon (:) as the operator of division fractions i.e., 1/2 : 1/3.
Decimals (decimal numbers) enter with a decimal point . and they are automatically converted to fractions - i.e. 1.45.
